Why must I send so many documents to get a visa?

Requirements for a visa differ from country to country though there are some documents required for almost all visas:

  • your actual passport (the visa is usually stamped in your booklet)
  • an application
  • photo(s)
  • business letter for business travel
  • itinerary
  • copy of US status for non-US passport holders (also see this FAQ)
  • and other requirements depending on the country

Some Consulates make it difficult to get a visa because it is difficult for nationals of their country to get a visa to the US. American Visa Service tries to provide all the requirements to you before you send documents but there are sometimes cases where the Consulate will ask for something unexpected; we cannot control this and make every effort to keep our clients informed via this site.
